Johnny Hughes announced the availability of CentOS on September 7.9.2009, XNUMX. This is the version of the old branch of the distribution created from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.9 source code:
"We are pleased to announce the general availability of CentOS Linux 7 (2009) for the x86_64 architecture. It is the current version for CentOS Linux 7 and is labeled as 2009, derived from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.9 source code. This release replaces all previously released content for CentOS Linux 7, so we encourage all users to upgrade their machines.
Older content, outdated by newer versions of the same applications, has been removed from Extras / and Plus / repositories. However, this time the content was also removed from the SIG hosted on mirror.centos.org and some older End of Life content.
"Everything we've released in the past is always available in the vault service for people who are still looking for it and really need it."
